Stormy weather

Last night, in the middle of the night, it sounded as if the Rattler wanted to blow its way back to Kansas. The winds were rocking the unit so hard, it felt about to roll over in the grassy field where we were camped. The thunder-and-lightning special effects were out in full force, as was the rain -- a steady gush of sideways stream.

I didn't get any pictures of the nighttime storm, but did have this shot from a week or so ago, when stormy gusts forced us to stop and shelter near a farm equipment business (all we could find out in the middle of where we were).

When the rains and wind eased, I decided to take a snap of the 'metal flowers' I'd been watching from our bed while the storm ran its course.

These rainstorms have been doing a job on much of the Midwest, as we were to find out yet again.
